- The vice-president has come out in defence his party is doing on the economy
- But the majority of YEN.com.gh's followers on Facebook feel Dr Bawumia is not being honest
The vice-president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has dramatically incited the anger of Ghanaians after praising the work his government has done since coming to power. Respondents on Facebook largely disagreed with the vice president and were not shy to say.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) campaigned in 2016 on the back of doing a better job for Ghanaians on the economy. As such, in December of that year, it seems the electorate trusted them and gave power to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
But since assuming power, it seems some of the problems from the time of National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been harder to solve. Apart from that, many of the bigger campaign promises of the NPP have not happened.
Clearly, many are not happy with the government and they are expressing it in no uncertain terms. Dr Bawumia is the head of the NPP's Economic Management Team so some feel he is actually praising himself on the economy.
As follows are some the some of the comments YEN.com.gh picked up.
User Markus Zoore Kuutege does not seem to trust Dr Bawumia very much and he replied as such.
Gmatim Justice was more philosophical. The user compared the language of Dr Bawumia in opposition and his language now.
Facebook user Paul Medicine was not to be left out. The user described the the vice-president's comments in very strong language.
And lastly, Bright Kantah was more patient because he feels the next general elections are just two years away.
